Senior Fours - Confirmation of player eligibility - from Andy Knott

The new Competition brought in by Bowls England has the same age requirements as the existing National Championships for Senior Singles and Pairs. They have added it to the list of National Competitions which means it is run by the Counties and the overall winners will represent England at the British Isles Championships.

To play in the Senior 4's this year players have to have reached the age of 55 before the 1st April 2017 and teams must be made up of 4 players from the same club. As in the County Fours, the names on the card for their first match are "the team" and one substitute is allowed
